There are two kinds of energy, potential and manifest. Before you think this is going to be boring, bear with me! Potential energy is waiting to be expressed. If it waits too long it stagnates and if it stagnates in our bodies it creates dis-ease. (That’s not a typo!) When energy is freed to move, it is manifested. It can be manifested through intentions, meaning “If I have an idea and I put it into motion, I’m freeing up energy.” Money is energy in material form. It wai
No conductor would start a symphony performance without tuning the various sections of the orchestra. In fact, if you’ve gone too long without getting a tune up for your car, you may have been left somewhere you’d rather not be. Most instruments and machines come with “owner’s manuals” that tell us what they need to keep them functioning. Our bodies, not so much! I lovingly call our bodies our “Earth Suits.” They are the form consciousness takes at the material plane. In
I had lived a life of intense competition prior to age 40, running for Student Government and Class offices, pitching highly competitive Women’s Fast Pitch Softball, and working toward my doctorate (and much more).

My vulnerable area was the thyroid gland, so when my mother died suddenly right after my 40th birthday, it said “STOP!” Of c
After my posting last week, many of you took the time to send cards and comment. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have a few things to share… I was walking in front of my house (feeling especially dogless) and asked Toby to send me a sign. In front of my neighbor’s house was a log. I’m including a picture of it, a stylized profile of Toby. There it was before my eyes. And then there was Nancy Reagan’s funeral. On Friday, waiting for Toby’s ashes to be delive
Many of you who study energy work know that there are said to be energy centers in the body called “chakras.” For those who are new to these ideas, there are many chakras, but the major ones are the root, the sacral plexus, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and the crown (seven in all). If you google the word “chakras,” you will come up with teachings and new ways of looking at our bodies, which after all are energetic systems. When I coined “Shock-Rah,” it came from
Have you noticed that you “feel before you think?” The body is wise and intuitive…the mind can be easily fooled. As I move into the practice of Reiki (light touch energy healing) I realize that it is a validation of what I’ve known all along. As they say in the East, the mind is a wonderful servant but a terrible master. My particular mind is capable of all sorts of mischief along with occasional wisdom.
